The BIOGRAPHY series aims to reveal the man behind the myth in this program that explores the life of George Washington, delving into his childhood and personal temperament to analyze the forces that shaped his ideals and ambitions.
Explore the truths and explode the myths of the man who remains "First in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen."
He was a gentleman farmer from Virginia, a brilliant and bold tactician who proved equally adept at leading men into battle and a young nation into the future.
From his youth of privilege to his inauguration as the nation's first president, here is George Washington's remarkable life. Exploring the truths, exploding the myths, it's the portrait of a man who first distinguished himself in the British forces, before creating the army that would ultimately defeat them. His was the pivotal role in establishing the modern world's first nation with neither a king nor an emperor.
This is a stirring look at the American hero who remains -- in the words of Henry Lee -- "First in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen."
